.....they’ve also tried a caff-racer style bike recently too......
At first glance I like it, but something tells me it's nothing but a polished turd. Maybe it's that awful skid plate.....Just saw this on Twitter.......Chinese (I think!) but being sold, at least here in the UK, under the French ’Mash’ brand. You could say it’s Reminiscent (i.e. a copy!) of the XT500, and therefore our bikes’ too.
Got a bit of Ducati Desert Sled about it too........Thoughts.....??
Ha.....I’d completely forgot about that thread!! :grin2:https://www.scr950forum.com/forum/250-other-motorcycles/4058-european-bikes.html
Have Mash improved their products in the last year and a half? I forgot all about these guys. They're definitely trying to go for a Ducati Scrambler look there, IMO.
That seems to be one of the main gripes when Americans comment on the video reviews on YouTube - “we don’t have anything like that over here”.That Fantic seems like a pretty cool ride. Man, I wish we had more mid-size options like that here in the US. It's difficult to find anything in the 400 - 800 cc range over here that isn't a dirtbike or a sport bike. Part of that has to do with a bigger-is-better-and-gas-is-cheap mentality that seems to dominate the market. :crying:
